MisandryCannon I want to say it's alternative industrial, but that doesn't seem right. Either way, it's really fantastic.

about

This album tells a part of a greater whole. A story of unknown size, of an unknown place, of unknown characters. This album is best experienced as a whole, with an open mind. The story is not just of one person, but of the growth, of darkness and of light, in all of us. To neglect it would be to neglect our own story, and to doom ourselves to enduring what these characters have endured.

Track Name: Budapest
She wears her heart out on her sleeve as bait for waiting hunters
Her words as sharpened as her teeth; a kiss that killed my brothers
She wears the colors that I bleed; a shade that makes me wonder just what she has in store for me
Or what became of all her lovers

Oh...

She waits on rocks for me at sea; a song that drags me under
She comes in silent as I sleep, drenched in an other's colors
She is exactly what I need, and all that makes me suffer
I know the depths that I have reached, and depths yet undiscovered

Oh...
Track Name: The Equation
I have calculated you and done the math in
We equate where I end and you begin

I have balanced you through and in
We equate when you come out
and I go in
Track Name: And When The Sky Was Opened
I looked into its eyes and saw me step away
The strangest voids inside me no longer at bay
And when the sky was opened, nothing came through
And nothing is all I will be

Had the pieces fit we wouldn't be in this mess
One thousand could have beens all left
And when the sky was open, it followed me through
No matter how many of me
There will never be enough of you

It's in my head and in my mind
Oh...what it does to me...
...I'd rather be blind

And I am undone
And in my place it stands
And when the sky does open, I will crawl back through
And I will leave it here alone

With you
Track Name: Event Horizon
It seems to be that my hunger's grown, and I can't sate it
I don't believe I'm here alone

Time slows down, and I am torn apart
What once was so bright now infinitely dark
The sun whose warming glow
Persuaded me to go
Is now a lonely spark on the horizon

Shame on me, I let this happen
And I can't stop it now
Don't want to see what it does to me

Time slows down, and I am torn apart
What once was so bright now infinitely dark
The sun whose warming glow
Persuaded me to go
Is now a lonely spark on the horizon
